Corner House – Preserving the memories

Hot Chocolate Fudge

Corner House has always been one of Bangalore’s iconic hangouts. It stands firm with it’s traditions while the city around it keeps changing. I remember their excellent hot chocolate fudge and cake fudge, two of my favourites from their short, but full menu.

Noodle Bowl

Initially, I thought of just ordering a lime soda but then I read the description for ‘Walk to the Wok’ and was intrigued. I have been to countless buffets but nothing quite like this one before.

The Mairaj Restaurant

Some times you pay for food, at other times – service. Most of the time, you expect a decent combination of both. That is the expectation I had when I walked in The Mairaj Restaurant, in Tilaknagar area in Bangalore.

Of Many Cuisines

I just came back from Ragoo’s on KR Road where I had a coleslaw, salad, garlic bread, muglai tikka, pizza, pasta, noodles and rice. That makes it at least three distinct cuisines in one meal. I never thought of this until now, but man, our stomach is facing a definite globalization thing going on too.
